- 100% completion
- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Chakan: The Forever Man is a fairly standard platform game in which you control a dead guy (Chakan has lost his soul) through many levels of hack and slash platforming. The ultimate goal is defeat all the bad-guys and so finally achieve inner-peace.

The story-line (if you can call it that) does give this game an interesting image and it is much darker than most other titles available on the Genesis.

This is a full completion run, which, compared to the any% branch, beats some additional levels and collects all items.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

This movie here is one that makes little to no sense to someone who isn't familiar with the game. The main character can move very fast and the dark graphics don't help in figuring out what's going on. There is a lot more going on in this movie than meets the eye. For example, the player uses a secret warp involving combining the alchemy potions that are scattered throughout the levels.

This improves the previous run of the game by 29.5 seconds thanks to a route change.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

- Genre: Platform
Pocket Monster is a relatively infamous bootleg game, based on the Pokemon franchise. Despite its infamy, it's a relatively generic platformer.

This run by zoboner beats the game in less then eight minutes.

Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness is the sequel to the first Castlevania Nintendo 64 adventure, and was developed and published by Konami in 1999. Although at war with the same enemy in the same castle, the player must fight as 4 different characters, with improved graphics and a new look to certain areas that appeared in the original.

To begin with, set 8 years before the events that took place in Castlevania, the count has kidnapped the young sister of Cornell, a powerful werewolf. As Cornell, the player must battle through the castle and defeat Dracula to save Cornell's sister.

In this run, zoboner beats the game as Cornell as fast as possible.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
Shinobi Legions (新忍伝 (Shin Shinobi Den) in Japan) is a side-scrolling action game, similar to Shinobi III. Sho's primary weapons are a sword and a finite number of shurikens, both of which are activated with separate buttons. Sho can learn nearly a dozen sword abilities (spinning slash, downward slash, sword shielding, etc.) by collecting powerups scattered throughout the stages. There are also the "Fire Dragon" powerups that act as single use ninja magic attacks that damage all enemies on-screen, which is the only ninja magic available to Sho.

zoboner, using an input sequence to play on the hardest difficulty, clears the game in record time.

Golden Axe Warrior is a spinoff of the Golden Axe series that more resembles The Legend of Zelda than it resembles other Golden Axe games. While the game takes many ideas from Zelda 1, it improves upon its inspiration in a number of different ways.

The game is beaten in under 31 minutes by zoboner using luck manipulation, glitched key drops, and other optimizations.

Master of Darkness is an action platformer developed for the Sega Game Gear and the Sega Master System by SIMS, and published by SEGA in 1992. The gameplay is very similar in nature to the Castlevania series of games. You play as a psychologist trying to defeat Dracula. This requires you to fight your way through several spooky locations such as cemeteries, laboratories, castles or a house of wax dolls.

zoboner makes his way through the five rounds and defeats Dracula in record time.
